- You surf for hours around the net looking for anime sites.
- Cat/animal ears are fashion like headband
- You call your teachers 'sensei', older schoolmates as 'senpai'
# When you can speak Japanese( or at least understand a Japanese conversation), but cant write a damn word in Japanese.
Damn. This is so true
# Having over 30 gigabytes of Anime on your hard drive for easy viewing pleasure
Well, you cant be an anime fan with anything less can you?

Loved this show.

#When you start to be able to watch some simple anime in raw and understand most of it.
My My, What has the world come to? Not there is anything wrong with this.

There is nothing wrong with it . I must admit, 7 years ago I just knew 'Konnichiwa' and 'Ichiban'. Now I can listen to seiyuu radio shows and pick up about 30-50% (depending on the show). How the heck did I manage to learn enough Japanese to understand Japanese radio shows? It's scary how much Japanese you can pick up with just anime.Quote:
That reminds me of a few more thingies (whatever these are called xD). Mine is more like 'You know when you're an otaku when...'
#When you listen to seiyuu radio show then your local radio
#When you prefer to listen to the Japanese dub of american movies. I always found Edward Cullen overated, but I loved Sakurai's voice for him in the Japanese dub...
#When you watch Eden of the East/Paradise Kiss and thought the opening/ending respectively had really good english and found out it was actually by bands from your own country...
I AM SO NOT GUILTY OF THIS
#When you think $60 for 2-3 episodes isn't expensive.
#When you think $90 for a pretty figurine is a fair price
#When you can convert japanese yen to your local currency with fairly look accuracy without any online converter
#When you call a pocky like product as 'fake pocky'
#When you use CCCP/MPC as your primary video player
#When you listen to the Honey Bee sheep counting series and fangirl/boy to the seiyuu voices...
#When you call Non-tan and KugiRie the King and Queen of tsunderes
#When you go on Oricon to check the charts everyday/week, and know the Japanese charts miles better then your local charts
#When you are annoyed to find out your local CDs doesn't include an instrumental track
#When you go ont Yahoo.co.jp autions more then Ebay
#When you are not confused by time like '25:30pm' or '26:00pm'
#When you go on seiyuu/mangakas twitter despite you can't read Japanese
#When you have more Japanese magazines then normal magazines
#When you buy Japanese edition mangas because they have better printing quality despite you can't read Japanese
#When you look tried to find Akihabara or Otome Road on Google Earth
#When you give yourself a Japanese nickname
#When you go on NicoNicoDouga and only ever type 'wwwwwwwww' because you can't type Japanese yet love going on to NND.
ahaha the niconico "wwwwwwwww" is so true<-------bang! found guilty
(reminds me my sig is from nicodouga, i only ever watch speed paint there[not that they're many though])
(dunno if my list contributes though)

When you start wondering where is the transform button when entering an army vehicle.
When you attempt to shoot with a rifle one handed, without using backsight and still think you can hit bullseye.
When you wonder why no one is impressed or yells 'sugoii!' after you take off weights from your hands and legs.
When you get dirty Hetalia pairing images in your mind when you hear from the news that some countries have made contracts of sort.
After going through some of this I am glad I still do not understand a word of japanesse. I get a couple of things like insults, WTH and whatnot but overall I can't make out 99% of it lol.
# When you try to manipulate random people just for the high of saying "just as I planned".
You start making mad love to anime pillows(dakimakura)
When someone asks for your name and you answer with "BUHAHAHA... THAT'S RIGHT, I AM KIRA".
When you remember almost every name from those dozens of manga,but have trouble remembering your friends' names.
When you start wishing your school gets attacked by yokai!
When you consider the elevator a Space/Time Ninjutsu.
